about wedding photography
|"Have you ever noticed, how long a blink
of an eye takes?
A split second.
Although something very important might happen in this very short time:
we can fall in love."
Anikó Boholy is a wedding photographer located
in Brighton. She is passionate about wedding photography.
"I think it's such a privilege to capture the couple's happiness, to be part of it! I
can't help not to be effected by their feelings, and it makes me even more inspired to
capture the greatest moments of the day" - she says.
She spends her time in the summer mostly in Brighton Marina, and travels abroad for a
longer holiday in the winter, "chasing the Light".

fényképészetért szenvedélyesen rajong
|"Figyelted már, mennyi ideig tart egy
A másodperc töredékéig.
Bár valami igen lényeges történhet ez alatt a rövidke idő
Boholy Anikó esküvői
fotográfus, Angliában, Brighton városában él és tevékenykedik. A
fényképészetért szenvedélyesen rajong.
"Kivételes helyzetben vagyok, hogy 'megleshetem' a menyasszony és vőlegény boldogságát, és magam is részese lehetek. Érzéseik
automatikusan engem is magukkal ragadnak, ami igencsak inspiráló, és lehetővé teszi, hogy könnyűszerrel
ráhangolódhassak az eseményekre, és megörökítsem a nap legnagyszerűbb pillanatait." - nyilatokozta Anikó.
Ideje nagy részét nyáron a Brighton-i kikötőben
tölti, télen pedig néhány hétre távoli országokba utazik, hogy személyesen
megtapasztalja a különböző kultúrák esküvői hagyományait."

|We thought your members would be
interested to know that we have provided from my wife Diana's family their recipe for
'Kolbasz' to Frank Richards & Son Butchers in Lewes (25 Western Road, Lewes BN7 1RL
01273 473086), opposite County Hall and between the Black Horse Inn and Pelham
Arms. They are now regularly making Hungarian Sausages.
They're very tasty and the best I've had outside Hungary. At the moment they are all
fresh. Whilst not available yet, they are also intending to smoke some too, just like the
ones available home made or in the markets in Hungary.

|Hungarian Dances - the CD of the novel
Jessica Duchen writes:
When I asked the distinguished French violinist Philippe Graffin, a treasured friend and
colleague, to check the manuscript of my novel Hungarian Dances
for musical errors, I little dreamed he'd respond by making this recording: a CD inspired
by the book. It is the first time, as far as I know, that an international musical star
has ever elected to record a new album in response to a contemporary novel!
He has chosen a stunning programme including Dohnányi's Andante rubato alla
zingaresca, Hubay's Hejre Kati, some Violin Duos and the Romanian Dances by
Bartók, Monti's Csárdás, four of Brahms's Hungarian Dances, and much more. He and his
wonderful pianist Claire Désert have created a daring, exciting and evocative album that
is filled with personality and atmosphere; it will assuredly be enjoyed not only by
readers of the book but by lovers of Hungarian music, the Gypsy violin tradition and great
performance for its own sake.
The novel, set in Lewes and Budapest, concerns a young
Anglo-Hungarian music teacher, Karina, and her grandmother, the celebrated violinist Mimi
Rácz who was born into a dynasty of Gypsy musicians in 1915. As Karina uncovers the
long-hidden secrets of Mimi's life, she begins to grow into a new identity of her own.
Many of these pieces of music appear in the novel; all reflect its world; and the
Dohnányi is the closest thing I have ever heard to my fictional composer Marc Duplessis'
lost concerto. And though this CD is designed to complement the book, we hope you will
enjoy it equally in its own right: a celebration of the spirit of old Central Europe, the
violin as the voice of that world, and the instrument's capacity for intensity, rhapsody,
poetry and passion.
Last but not least, the 'luthéal' is an early-20th-century device, invented by the
composer Maurice Ravel, which provides the piano with stops that make it imitate the
timbre of the Hungarian cimbalom. Claire performs on a contemporary copy of Ravel's
luthéal in several key works here, adding yet another dimension to a disc already
brimming with ideas.
I am overwhelmed to think that my book has sparked off such a beautiful recording. I hope
you will love it as much as I do!

People reading inspired a celebrated photographer
André Kertész's father was a bookseller. That may explain how he
became preoccupied with capturing images of people reading. On the street or perched
on window-sills, in one country or another the subjects of his photos are utterly absorbed
in books, newspapers and even, in one case, a Bible. Kertész died in 1985 and a
marvellous collection of his work on this theme has just been re-punlished. It
covers some 55 years of his photography.
is published by the New York based independent publisher W.W. Norton and Company (500
Fifth Avenue, New York, NY 10110), and has just been released in the UK.
A novel set in Budapest and Lewes
A novel published this week is set partly in Budapest and partly, by coincidence, in
Hungarian Dances follows three generations of a family of
Hungarian musicians and spans some eighty years, from 1918 to the present day: it is
described as 'a love story, a mystery and a tale of extraordinary personal
|The book was published by Hodder &
Stoughton this week, launched in a presentation at the Hungarian Cultural Centre in London
on 4 March, organised by the British-Hungarian Fellowship. At the event Lady Valerie
Solti made a speech and violinist Tasmin Little performed Bartók.
A paperback edition will be published on 24 July, and an associated CD of violin
music by Hungarian composers may be released around then too.

Philharmonic Orchestra which plays at Glyndebourne from May to August. Hungarian
Dances is her third novel. She is also a music journalist for The Independent.

from Colin Penny, Matra Wildlife Tours
Jó estét kivánok to the members of Sussex Hungarian Society ! I
thought I'd drop you a line as my partner, Terez, and I have started a small eco-tourism
venture in the Matra mountains of Hungary, and we wondered if it might be of interest to
some of your members. Please take a look at our web site for more information.
As the site says, although we mainly provide holidays for wildlife enthusiasts, we
are also able to provide tours of castles and historic cities. We can arrange light
aircraft or glider flights from the local airfield, and also trips to watch matches
from the professional women's handball (női kézilabda) league. In
closing, we wish you continued success with your comparatively new society, and hope to
meet some of your members in Hungary sometime in the future.
